's not going to change. but it seems that the u.s. is trying to do a last-ditch effort to prevent a slaughter in benghazi. and saif gadhafi said, don't bomb us. it was very strange. listen to what he said. >> we want, even americans, to help us get rid of the remnants of those people and have a peaceful country. we want you to help us 20, you know, middle east democracy. more freedom. being peaceful. but not to threaten us with air strikes. we will not be afraid. >> and he said whatever happens is not going to cause his father to leave office. >> but i couldn't help but when we were listening with george. if you're waking up this morning and you hear that his father is considering shooting down passenger planes. american passenger planes. is he serious about that? >> well, the defense minister made that threat. and they did do lockerbie. they've taken admission for it. they do do that. clearly, one of the things that happens is you have to be prepared for some kind of retaliation. and they're threatening terrorism. >> what's your gut here? >> the gut is they don't have significant air defense
said in a potential intervention would come with regret. u.s. and allied forces meeting in paris to talk about potential military action. president obama said yesterday that the united states will take part in a no-flight effort. -- no-fly effort. we want to get your thoughts on the u.s. joined the no-fly effort. here is how you can contribute this morning. here iare the numbers at the bottom of your screen. the president announcing yesterday in a statement about the united states supporting a no-fly zone. this has been done by several allies. we will take a look at the headlines on "washington journal" this morning. mr. obama sketched out an american military role. -- rule. you have probably seen other headlines this morning as well. meetings are going on to talk about the strategy with the united states and other allied forces. the president made the statement yesterday about joining the no- fly zone effort. he spoke about what the united states will not do. here is what he had to say. >> i want to be clear about what we will not be doing. the united states is not going to depl
and artillery and at the same time u.s. officials cautioned the united states and allies intend to limit their involvement, allowing for no troops on the ground. the libyan story, japan story, and the budget situation at home. the continuing resolution that punts the decisions on the budget until the beginning of april. they left town this friday morning. we would like to hear which of these stories are most important to you this friday morning. let's begin with a call from san antonio, texas. robert on the independent line. caller: am i on? good morning. i wanted to say that the most significant story i believe is what is happening in the middle east with all of these uprisings and the people wanting democracy. i find it very significant, even though all of these things are happening across the world like japan, i find this very significant because even though america has not intervened with these countries to try to make than democracies, they themselves have tried to make themselves free of dictators and other powers that they did not have control of. host: robert, what do you think o
taliban situation for the u.s. what is the worst case scenario? >> libya has been very strong having its young men go overseas to fight in islamic insurgency, balkans, chechnya, especially ir rack when the height of the fighting was there. those that don't get killed go home. i think the core of the resistance, whatever little military ability they have is probably made up by people elsewhere we would call mujahadeen. so it's a dicey proposition to be getting involved with this. i'm not sure that the opposition, if it takes power, is going to be much better than was gadhafi. >> that's why you need to have the cia, i presume, in there vetting, as we said, who are these people? who are the elements funding or supporting them? who are politically the most palatable and least palatable among them, the white house saying no decision has been made. i have a question for you as a cia veteran, i guess. the fact that we even know about this, is that unusual? should where he just assume the cia in this sort of situation would, of course, be in there on the ground? >> you have to assume the preside
investors in the u.s. as we just discussed, oil prices keep on spiking up another 2.7% yesterday. this is the increase in oil closing at just under $100 a barrel here in the united states. it was higher than that last week, but it has been in that area for a while. as a result of that, take a look at what happened in stock markets. the dow took a big hit, down 168 points. we also heard from federal reserve chairman ben bernanke who expressed concern about the economic recovery if the price of oil keeps climbing. >>> also, democrats south of the border in wisconsin still staying away in illinois. and the governor of wisconsin unveiling his new state budget, which includes cuts to schools and local municipalities. and the protests will continue at the capitol. the governor planned to cut compensation and collective bargaining rights for union work sti ers. cnn's david mattingly is live in madison, wisconsin. any movement on either side? is there any hope of resolving this? or are we seeing more of the same today, david? >> well, kiran, we're approaching the two-week mark of that da
